I (Noreen) received a letter from Cynthia, who most of you know and who is now in the Hartismere Care Home. She sends greetings to her “chums in the EAG” and says she is glad her surplus painting gear went to a Good Home. She struggles with her eyesight and hearing and was poorly for several days after her 4th Covid jab, but still seems in good spirits now, enjoying some charcoal drawing at their weekly art club meetings. Best wishes to Cynthia!
Carolyn took the opportunity of Roy’s fishing leaves and newts out of his pond, to do the first of these drawings. She says she has outlined Roy’s hand to give the impression of their size, and notes that their tummies are very colourful. The second picture is an attempt at loose drawing of the cherry blossom.
This is my (Noreen's) attempt at painting “Daffs in the Ditch” in acrylics. It was again inspired by a view during one of my regular constitutionals. Other subjects there have tempted me, but are so far proving too complicated to do justice to. I may persist!
Don't forget it is the Chairman's Project on the theme of 'Movement' next week. Sally P urges us to come, even if we haven't done a picture, to support those who have.
Hope to see you lots of you there.
